Clean up after your dog

If anyone sees a young woman walking a tiny black dog- a Scottie I think, check your lawn! She doesn't pick up. I confronted her last night on 1700 block New England and all she said was sorry! If enough of us complain maybe she'll get responsible and learn to carry a bag. I'm going to watch for her tonight and remind her to pick up after her dog.

Block Cleanup by House Number (Genius!)

Make the neighborhood sparkle! The battle against litter is hard, the Portage Park Neighborhood Association is asking everyone to try something easy!

Make the neighborhood sparkle! The battle against litter is hard, the Portage Park Neighborhood Association is asking everyone to try something easy!

If the last number of your home address and the last number of the date are the same, try and remember to walk your block and pick up the litter. Many come and go from the back of the house and don't see the litter so this is a reminder to pay attention to the front. You won't make it out there every time but maybe someone else with your number will and we can stem the unending tide. And when you do make it out maybe you will get to know the neighbors with your number better. This is also a good lesson for children and good exercise!

What's behind this idea? There was some construction on a commercial building near my house that I sometimes pass when walking my dog and the litter on the parkway on the side of the building was driving me crazy! I filled a 13 gallon trash bag one day! The neighbors who live in the house that is closest to that parkway are not able to pick up the litter so this is a good reminder to myself to go mosey on down to their house and that strip of parkway and tidy up.

For me, another idea behind this cleanup is that small things can make people feel like they are a part of something. This is something that almost everyone can participate in and I hope we can create a sense of community by becoming soldiers in the war on garbage!

  • Great idea !!! I am all for picking up litter. People now a days litter A LOT.

  • Minerva Performing Schools. Performing Communities.

    Although I wish we would not litter in the first place, this is a great counter measure. Thank you for thinking about the community.

Move to Galewood?

My husband and I are considering a move to Galewood. We are city employees and have a two 1/2 year-old son. We like that Galewood is close to Oak Park and Elmwood Park. The homes are really beautiful as well. As with any neighborhood, we are concerned for safety and a sense of community among residents. Is Galewood the right neighborhood for us?

  • Finian 38 years in Galewood

    I have lived in Galewood for over 40 years and never had a problem, raised 3 daughters. Truthfully the neighborhood never looked better. My next door neighbor is a Captain with the Fire Department other neighbors include CPD folks, O'Hare Airport worker etc.

  • I know I'm tardy to the party, but how is your house hunting going? I concur with everyone who has commented. Your family would love Galewood.
